"Resonant Disclosures" follows the growth of my work over the past few years from solar-powered lightbox installations in public spaces to viewer-activated interactive artworks intended for indoor viewing. Both bodies of work invite examination of multiple narratives and meanings that unfold as the artworks transform to disclose additional information to viewers. I see this exchange as an active dialogue between viewer and artwork that encourages multiple possible readings from each piece, acting as the impetus for meaning formation and allowing the audience to directly engage in the interpretation of revealed content.
My recent lightbox works require direct physical engagement from the viewer in order to reveal additional dialogue. These works are an exploration and interpretation of the many ways we can perceive the people and environs of the world around us. Just as light going through a prism becomes an entire spectrum, the ideas, contexts, and motivations embedded within our daily lives are always more than what they appear on the surface. Each piece is the beginning of a conversation that requires a second participant in order to continue. By offering my own subjective interpretation of the presented images when a lightbox is activated, I initiate the discovery of resonant meanings within this two-way dialogue between viewer and artwork.
